With the prevalence in Hood Cleaning license suspensions by the OSFM, any thoughts/discussion on the DFS issuing one official sticker that the licensed cleaning companies must use to affix on the hoods (in a similar fashion to the one official fire extinguisher tag that we will now be seeing) instead of companies utilizing their own similar but different stickers. Some stickers out there don't have the licensed cleaner's name on it, and/or the license number is not on it or is illegible (handwritten). The fire departments get notices from the Marshal's office of these suspensions but it can often be difficult to tell from certain company stickers on hoods who is the licensed individual that was responsible for the cleaning of the hood. I know it should be on the paperwork the restaurant receives but sometimes it can be difficult or time-consuming to produce that at the time of inspections -- it would be more efficient if the information was present in a uniform fashion on the sticker in plain view.
